|Companion Plants||Glendora is the perfect neutral mass of white for more subtle-colored flowering plants. In warmer climates, surround the tree with pink and lavender from Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha), Siskiyou Evening Primrose (Oenothera speciosa 'Siskiyou') and Flower CarpetTM Pink Groundcover Rose (Rosa x 'Noatraum'). In the background, plant the fast- growing, purple-flowering Potato Vine (Solanum jasminoides).|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.
